Updated October 9, 2014

Komen WNY and the University at Buffalo’s Department of Family Medicine shows local incidence and deaths from breast cancer remain above state and national averages. “To some extent, the data confirms what we already know,” said La’Tasha Williams, research associate in the department of family medicine. “But the report also highlights that there are still major barriers for some people, particularly transportation,” she said.
